About the Book

* Caldecott Honor Book * ALA Notable Book * New York Times Best Illustrated Book *

Children romp and play throughout a heavy fog in a Cape Cod seaside village in this classic Caldecott Honor Book, from legendary picture book duo Alvin Tresselt and Roger Duvoisin.

The worst fog in twenty years rolls in and clouds the seaside village. For three days, the adults wait impatiently for the fog to lift. But the children love the mysterious fog—playing hide-and-seek, making scrapbooks, and toasting marshmallows.

Roger Duvoisin’s watercolors bring brightness to each foggy scene, complementing the text’s celebration of childhood rainy beach vacation days.

First published in 1965, Hide and Seek Fog is one of eighteen timeless collaborations by this legendary duo.
